Marilyn Monroe and Ella Fitzgerald

Ella wasn’t allowed to play at the Mocambo, a famous nightclub, because she was black.

Marilyn called the owner and said that she’d show up for every show and sit in the front row if they allowed Ella to sing.

And Marilyn was there for every show in the front row.
